Fixable agile report selection dropdown + prev/next navigation (chart picker) Edited

Similar, long agile report name select options are truncated, identical + unusable in the chart picker dropdown input.

A user interface for navigating to previous or next names in a report list would be very useful to review a sequence of reports (e.g. observe burndowns for 10 sequential sprints) and would ease the need to continually lookup items in the existing select option input.

Perhaps I'm missing a very obvious UI or view that already exists for doing this.

More Details:

Instance name options related to various types of agile charts or reports (burndown, epic, sprint, version) are indistinguishable in the select options when the first ~20 chars of the instance names are identical (typically due to naming categorization that may occur).

My particular usage required moving through a series of sprints to observe burndown charts. When I got to a section of 10-15 similar names it was nearly impossible to navigate correctly.

This could be a regression to the problem in this very old bug:

Steps to reproduce: (screenshot at bottom)

1. Multiple agile sprint names (or other similar Jira Agile instance references - epics, versions etc.) must share the first ~20 chars.
2. Visit URL: http://<Jira server host>/projects/<project name>/?selectedItem=com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:report-page
3. Click on a report that will allow selecting from names with ~20 char overlap (e.g. Burndown Chart)
4. Try to select from select option above the chart
5. Observe that many of the names are truncated and identical

Possible Fix:
Increasing the size of this field - perhaps doubling it, would yield a slightly more usable dropdown for many users that use a convention of shared prefixes or preambles in naming to categorize instances of sprints, epics, versions etc.

(Perhaps this bug or related UI states are of concern:

Possible Alternate Fix or Improvement:
Two 'prior' and 'next' UI elements that navigate to those respective list items in the select options before and after the current list item of the report being shown.
* Allows more convenient analysis of sequential reports, especially in a long list
* Longer runs of identical adjacent prefixes are still navigable one by one
